  KUTRALAM - YOGAPEETA NAYAKI TEMPLE

Kutralam is a much frequented and highly venerated thirtha kshetra, where Daivam, thirtham and kshetram are equally important and have catapulted its fame to unimaginable height. It also goes by the name of Trikutamalai, means thereby that the hill has three sikharas representing Trimurthis. The waterfalls flowing perennially stands for thirtham and the sanctity acquired by the place by the presence of Kutralanathar denotes Daivam aspect. There is another interpretation that the hill represents Adiparasakti and the three sikharas are her sons - the Trimurthis. The perennial flow of water signifies her boundless compassion. Many god-men and bhaktas, like Tirugnana sambhadar visited and praised these triple aspects elaborately. The presiding deity of this holy place is Kutralanathar. It is quite apt and significant, since on splitting of the word into two - Ku and thalam we get rich meaning. The first part Ku means birth and the second Thalam stands for destruction. Taken together it denotes that Kutralanathar is snapping the bonds of man tying him to this mundane world. Is not Lord Maheswar called Layakara? So it is pregnant with appropriate and apt meaning.
